Cats, Cats, and more Cats…Love this one, but was located inside the gates of a private clan temple, and I never managed to go by when the gates were open. I could only shoot through the gate rails.

This one is so funny, located directly across from the fire station on Chulia Street.

“Trishaw man” is one of the bigger murals (and one of my favs), but believe it or not, unless you’re looking for, it it’s easy to miss. Located on Upper Penang Road, close to the Cititel Hotel.

  1. Love the cats wall (^_^) So cute…

    • Yeah, I love the cats, too. I really wanted to get inside and take a better photo, but no luck!

  2. Love the bike…and M.Monroe, of course! Street art is always such a joy to see, really livens up a city!

    • Thanks, Jess! Good street art really is fun to find, and to enjoy.

  3. I love those cats in the first shot, and also the guy on the bike!

    • Hi Corrine,

      They are two of my favorites as well.

  4. How fun! I love those cats and the kids playing with the box, but you are right, the man on the trishaw is just amazing.

    • Hi Cindy,

      Yeah, there is just so much detail to the trishaw man.

  5. Very cool art! Looks like a nice trip.

    • Hi Brooke. Penang is a great destination. Lots to see and lots to do.

  6. I tried to comment from my blog link and Google kept showing your blog (that I was in) as unavailable. So I went to Chrome, did a search and your blog came up and here I am! (I sometimes wonder why any of us put ourselves through these techno-stresses!) Rant over. Love these photos and of course, the kitties always win my heart first!

    • Hi Jackie. I am sorry you had such problems commenting. Computers are just so unpredictable! As you well know, I never pass up the opportunity to take a shot of a cat real or on a wall 🙂

  7. Hi Nancie, I’m absolutely enjoying the Penang arts you have been showing us. Please keep them coming. I like the trishack man, especially after i saw the detailed one. I dind’t think anything special about the Fire photo until I read your caption. Pretty clever! Looking forward to the next batch!

    • Hi Marisol,

      I’m so glad your’re enjoying the art. Yeah, the fire photo is funny when you know the context. Thanks for linking up this week.

  8. I am enjoying seeing Penang’s street art scene. What a great and fun way to stroll around the city. Love that trickshaw man.

    • Hi Mary! It does add to a wander around the city. My eyes were constantly peeled looking for next mural.

  9. It’s embarassing how many times I must have driven by the Trishaw Man without noticing him. My excuse is that my eyes were focused on the road and concentrating on not hitting actual trishaw drivers or motor scooters. Did you have a chance to eat at the Red Garden Hawker Center right by him? The last time I went by that cat parade mural, the clan temple had just started renovation. It’s my understanding that the gates would be locked for months until it was finished.

    • I almost never found the Trishaw man. Whatever I read said it was right at the bus stop close to the Cititel, but never mentioned the Red Garden. I did eat at the Red Garden. Hard to go wrong with the food served by the vendors. The temple is still being renovated, so I guess the gates are locked away until they finish (:

  10. I have to agree that the the cats are my fave shot!

    • The cat parade really is special!

  11. Seek and you shall find. That is what is interesting about really exploring a city or a town, you find the most interesting bits!

    • Hi Cathy. That is so true, and why I always like to travel slowly.

  12. Great post. Wall drawing is such an amazing form of art. Beautiful, simply breathtaking.

  13. Is there any way to know about the name of the artist who made the “Trishaw man”? Someone knows it?
